Public authorities invited to help shape green electricity criteria

The EU Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for electricity are currently under review. The first stage of this process is a survey of public authorities, due to be carried out in October 2015. The survey will look at how much electricity is currently being purchased from renewable sources, the procurement procedures used, and what is stopping public procurers from purchasing more renewable electricity.

The survey is aimed at local authorities who are already purchasing some renewable electricity as well as those who would like to but are currently unable to do so. The questionnaire itself takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete and will be extremely valuable in ensuring the updated criteria are both useful and appropriate.

The more responses received, the more accurately the new criteria will reflect the reality on the ground. The survey is available in English, German, Spanish, Italian, French and Lithuanian.
